This little tidbit, if it works as documented, would imply that a very large list could be really slow
Exactly my concern as these are shared hosting sites. I do have all the denys in one environment and in numerical order, but I'm wondering how many individual lines I can replace by using the many CIDRs in the country blocking lists, also whether individual lines process any faster and if not is there a length limit? The host does pull IPs from the htaccess into a different IPblock feature in CP but it would take forever to add them there one at a time. The host told me that once the IPs are blocked in CP I don't need them in every domain in that hosting account. So what I am doing is amending the htaccess for the main domain and skipping those lists for htaccess in the subdomains.
So many scrapers, so little time.
